KOCHI: Though the senior police officers put on a brave face, an uneasy calm prevailed at the Aluva Police Club.

The reason - no breakthrough in tracing the mobile allegedly used by key accused Pulsar Suni to record the victim’s video, even after 10 hours of questioning and two hours of evidence collection. If the video gets published, it would result in the Kerala Police losing its face.

The police are not convinced by Suni’s statement that he threw the mobile phone on roadside while travelling in the city.  Searches carried out at Vennala, where Suni is believed to have abandoned the phone, did not yield any result.    

According to the officers, the mobile phone and its memory card need to be recovered before questioning the accused in detail. As per a petition lodged by DySP K G Babu Kumar, a broader investigation is needed to trace the mobile phone and collect more evidence, considering the fact the accused had travelled out of the state.

The victim had told CI Radhamani that Suni captured her video on his mobile phone. According to the victim, the accused told her those who had hired him for the ‘job’ would call her the next day to ‘settle’ the matter.

It is learnt Suni has been sticking to his stance that the actor was abducted with the aim of blackmailing her for ransom. 

There are unconfirmed reports he had nursed a grudge against the victim after she removed him from the job of her driver a few years ago.

According to the police, Suni has committed several serious crimes in the past.
